Fortunately, cooperative learning is a method through which this can be implemented and improved, since it encourages students to work in small team groups with different level of ability, where they help each other, they are responsible for their learning as well as the teammates learning, and work on an assignment until all member successfully understand and complete it. Also, this method permit students to acquire more language and social skills that others whom studying the same content under individualistic classroom condition will never reach.
